PixishThis post also appears in Pixish News.

Pixish has been out for three weeks now, and we’re thrilled to see all the creative assignments happening. Here are a few favorites:

  • Now’s your last chance to win passes to SXSW Interactive 2009 and a year of Flickr Pro in the The SXSW Gallery Show: My Big Idea assignment. Just submit a photo of what inspires you.
  • Got photos of animals? The Kitty Wigs Cat Photo Contest is seeking photos of your cat. The winner will get a¬†free Kitty Wig ($50 value). And Wildlife Forever, a nonprofit conservation organization, seeks nature photography for their fundraising calendar. Winners will receive $50, $100 for the cover.
  • Looking for something with a big prize? The Worldwide Logo Design Annual is looking for a killer photo or illo for their call for entries. The winner will receive $1,000 Euro (that’s about $1,500 in US bucks) and all submitters will receive a free copy of the 2006 Worldwide Logo Design Annual.
  • Calling all illustrators! Mike Mongo’s “HUMANNAIRES! Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-teens” is seeking an illustration of an astronaut for a book ($50-100). And Tekka magazine is looking for a photo or illo of a Four Year Old Girl and Cat ($50).
  • Fancy drawing a tattoo? Pixish members are looking for a leaf in the river, a squirrel and a bluejay, and the idea of reconnection.

That’s just a taste – there are lots more! Check out all our fine assignments. And remember, if you need pictures for a publishing project, that’s what we’re here for. Post your own assignment! You might even get mentioned here if your project is interesting and the reward is good (hint, hint).
